This is the only gluten-free banana bread recipe you’ll ever need. Extra moist and incredibly easy to make, it is sure to become your new go-to.


  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup quinoa flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter (1/2 stick), softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 23 overripe bananas, mashed well (1 cup)
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt 
  • 3 tablespoons milk (any type)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ounces dark chocolate, chopped (about 1/2 cup)


  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F and grease a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together almond and quinoa flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together coconut sugar and butter with an electric hand mixer or stand mixer on medium-high speed with whisk attachment for 3 to 4 minutes, until creamy.
  4. Add eggs, one at a time, beating on medium speed until each one is just combined. Add mashed bananas, yogurt, milk, and vanilla, and beat until combined on medium speed.
  5. Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture and beat at low speed until just combined. Fold in the chopped chocolate.
  6. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and bake for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Remove from oven. Let cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before turning out to cool completely on a wire rack. Slice and serve.
